|One upon a time, Odin, Loki and Honir were Traveling when they came across Otr, who had the likeness of an Otter during the day. Loki killed the Otter “Otr” with a stone and the three Aesir skinned their catch. The gods came to Hreidmar’s home that evening and were pleased to show off the otter’s skin. Hreidmar and his remaining two sons then captured the gods and held them prisoner while Loki was forced to collect the ransom, which was to stuff the otter’s skin with gold and cover its outside with red gold. Loki carried out the task by collecting the cursed gold of Andvari's gift as well as the ring, Andvarinaut, and the gold which were told to Loki as items that would bring death to whoever owned them. Fafnir then killed his father Hreidmar to get all the gold for himself. He became very crazy, so he went into the wilderness to keep his fortune, eventually turning into a dragon “symbol of greed” to guard his treasure. Fafnir also breathed poison into the land around him so no one would ever go near him and his huge treasure, bringing terror in the hearts of the people. The brother of Fafnir, planned to get avenge so that he could get the treasure. So Regin sent his foster son Sigurd to kill the dragon. Regin taught Sigurd to dig a pit in which he could lie in wait under the trail Fafnir used to get to a stream and there plunge his sword “Gram”, into the heart of Fafnir as crawls over to the pit of water. Regin then ran away in fear, leaving Sigurd to the task. While digging the trench, Odin came along in form of an old man with a long beard, advising Sigurd to dig more trenches for the blood of Fafnir to run into, so that Sigurd does not drown in the blood. The earth quaked and the ground nearby shook as Fafnir crawled into the water. Fafnir also blew poison into his path as it made his way to the stream. Sigurd, undaunted, stabbed Fafnir in the left shoulder as he crawled over the ditch he was lying in and succeeded in mortally injuring the dragon. As the great dragon lies there dying, he speaks to Sigurd and asks him what his name is, what his father’s and mother’s names are, and who sent him to kill such a terrifying dragon. Fafnir figures out that his own brother, Regin, planned the dragon’s death, and tells Sigurd that he is pleased that Regin will also cause Sigurd’s death. Sigurd tells Fafnir that he will go back to the dragon’s lair and take all his treasure. Fafnir warns Sigurd that all who own the gold will be destined to die, but Sigurd replies that all men must one day die, and it is the ambition of many men to be wealthy until that dying day, so he will take the gold without fear. Regin then went back to Sigurd after Fafnir was slain. Corrupted by greed, Regin plotted to kill Sigurd. After Sigurd had cooked Fafnir’s heart for him to eat and take all the treasure for himself. Sigurd had tasted the blood of Fafnir, while cooking the heart and gained knowledge of the language of birds. And learned of Regin’s impending attack from the Oðinnic ”of Odin” birds discussion and killed Regin by cutting off his head with the sword “Gram” Sigurd then ate some of Fafnir’s heart and kept the remainder, which would later be given to Gudrun after their marriage.|
